Yoga mats are designed to enhance your practice by enabling the cleanest and healthiest breathing experience possible. Theyâ€™re made from organic cotton, handwoven in Kerala (India) and dyed in natural ayurvedic herbs by villagersÂ whose familiesÂ have been practicing this 5000-year oldÂ Indian fabric dyeing technique for generations.Â
The GodhuliÂ Yogastra mat is dyed in the herbs Vetiver, Turmeric, and Pomegranate shells.
The colors coming from Turmeric and pomegranate shells creates a melange of yellow and orange, much like the village skyline at dusk when the cows come home in a hue of sandÂ against the orange sky â€“ a time of day thatâ€™s always been known in India as Godhuli (Go+Dhuli: Go meaning cow and Dhuli meaning dust).
The Godhuli Yogastra mat creates a positive energy space for your practice with its combination of herbs.
Vetiver is an important stress-relieving herb used in Ayurveda to cure stress-related illnesses and insomnia. InhalingÂ vetiver can cleanse your internal system and improve your concentration during practice.
Turmeric acts as a strong antibacterial agent, kill the germs that come from sweat. ItÂ keeps the mat clean and hygienic for longer periods of time.
In Ayurveda, pomegranate is used to balance the doshas and strengthens the heart. Pomegranate shells retain these qualities and areÂ especially good to breathe in during yoga practice.
Handmade from 100% cotton and with no chemicals used in any stage of the production process, a Yoga mat creates the cleanestÂ breathing space for your practice.
You canÂ roll it up and carry it on your shoulder using theÂ cotton strap that comes with it. Or, you can fold it and put it in a bag. The folding is especially useful when traveling.
